. president obama had been in orlando, florida, last night. he delivered pizzas to a local campaign office but called off an appearance there today with former president clinton. >> which means that, you know, that's going to be putting a little bit more burden on folks in the field because i'm not going to be able to campaign quite as much over the next couple of days. >> woodruff: still neither side could afford to let sandy derail all campaigning. so mr. clinton soldiers on in his absence. >> i say let's give the jobs to the man who has done the job so he can finish the job. >> woodruff: in his white house statement on the hurricane tod today, the president said politics would simply take a back seat for now. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. i'm worry about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy. and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> woodruff: in all, the hurricane forced cancellation of two dozen campaign events on both sides. it cou
